by Mr. Bonzai
edited by David Schwartz

This amazing compilation features 600 quotations from esteemed musicians and artists who have taken a moment to reflect on their influences, heroes, integrity, performances, and so much more. These gems of hard-won wisdom cover not only the highs of success, money, and fame, but also frankly reveal the lows of missteps and rejection. The shared experiences of heavy-hitters such as George Martin, Tom Petty, Phil Ramone, Brian Wilson, Jack Johnson, k.d. lang, David Foster, and Carlos Santana, to name just a few, can function as both advice for those starting out in the industry and a behind-the-scenes peek for any music fan. This handbook also includes a visual “who's who” of the music biz with the inclusion of headshots of the artists featured. A celebration of what it means to make music, this collection is a must-have for anyone who has ever hummed a tune or been inspired by an insightful lyric.
